Create a Handicap Accessible Home

Category: Home Modifications,Wheelchairs
March 4, 2019

Implementing the proper features to make a handicap accessible home requires knowledge of your needs and lifestyle as well as industry essentials like stair lift installations and exterior ramp rentals in Maryland. Whether you’re looking for temporary or long-term solutions to accessibility, a Maryland remodeling team can help keep you moving.

Stairlifts

 

 

Stairlifts can drastically change the quality of life of those with mobility restrictions. Installation of a stairlift can improve safety when your loved one is at risk of falling when using stairs on their own. Balance and strength, among other factors, can impact one’s safety while using stairs. However, installing a stairlift can put all worries to rest.

Personal independence can become hindered when your loved one struggles with accessibility. Stairlifts negate the need for conversations about in-home assistance and allow for the entire home to be well-utilized by your loved one completely on their own.

Wheelchair Ramps

 

 

Wheelchair ramps can be the final transformative stage in making your home and life handicap accessible. It’s important to consult with a professional to determine what type of ramp will best fit your home accessibility needs. Installation of permanent ramps can also increase the value of your home while ensuring the safety of your loved one at the same time.

Modular ramps are often the most flexible option for homes as they are sectioned into several segments which can be used to climb a few stairs or make turns around corners to align with the landscape of your home, all while providing gradual, easy to navigate angles. Modular ramps come with safety in mind including sturdy handrails and safe aluminum parts made in the U.S.

Kitchen and Bathroom Improvements

 

 

Kitchen and bathroom remodeling can complete the goal of an independent lifestyle as they improve quality of life in two of the most-used areas in your home that are typically least suitable for wheelchairs. Whether it’s the simple widening of doorways and lowering of counters or a seat and grab bars in the shower, these small changes can significantly improve daily activities.
